Employee stories: Taya

Happy Dietitian’s Day!

In 2022, we are celebrating and thanking Dietitian’s around the country for their hard work in helping clients manage their lifestyle through positive food and nutrition choices.

We are also acknowledging Dietitian accomplishments through the hashtag #ProudToBe. One of our very own Dietitians, Taya, recently celebrated her one-year working anniversary with Gen Physio.

In the spirit of this, we asked her a few questions about her career including her favourite part of the role and what it’s like working at Gen Physio. Taya has a passion for dietetics and positive eating not only at work but in her spare time as well.

What do you do at Gen Physio?

I am an accredited practising dietitian (APD) – I help people to find ways to nourish themselves with food so they are able to live life to their best potential.

I am #ProudToBe an APD because I help people make more positive eating choices and take away the stress of travelling by visiting my clients in their own homes or via Telehealth appointments.


How would you describe your team?

The dietetics team might not be as large as our other disciplines, however together we are mighty. We work to support each other and our clients by meeting regularly and learning from our shared experiences. Even though we are spread across SEQ we speak every day and I always know that when I have a tricky question or need support, someone is there to troubleshoot with me.

 

 What clinician benefits have you taken advantage of while working for Gen Physio?

I have made the most of accessing professional development opportunities though my PD allowance and study leave. This has included attending the Dietitian’s Australia conference in Adelaide this year and learning from a range of great speakers at Gen Physio’s annual symposium event.

Why did you choose Gen Physio?

I chose Gen Physio because I wanted to be a clinician in the community setting and find the work really rewarding. Our clients can face many barriers in their everyday lives and when we see them in their homes alongside their families and carers, we can help them in a way that really addresses these barriers. The work-life balance is another bonus with flexible working arrangements to suit my personal schedule.
